Models (Abaqus/Standard)

General Contacthighly automated, based on


all-inclusive surface definition
simple models, rubber, solid propellant,
elastomer
Contact Pairsexplicit pair surfaces (like ANSYS
APDL)
metal, clay, ice at low strain

Contact Elements
Contact Propertiesfriction, pressure
overclosure, spot welds

Surfaces (Abaqus/Standard)

Element-basedassociate surface area w/ node,


calculated contact stress
Single-sidedtest for contact in direction of
normal
Double-sidedmore general (more expensive)
Edge-basedperimeter edges of model (shells)
Node-basedsimilar to edge-based but using
nodes
Analyticalmobile but perfectly rigid
